## Honors Math

Students who are enrolled in the Honors Math courses will be learning materials that is accelerated a grade beyond their grade level peers.

### 6th Grade

The concepts students will be learning are similar to a traditional Pre-Algebra class.

- Understand derived quantities
- Solve problems involving rates, ratios, and proportions
- Recognize irrational numbers
- Compute with rational numbers
- Understand and apply directly proportional relationships and relate to linear relationships
- Understand and represent linear functions
- Understand and solve problems about inversely proportional relationships
- Apply basic properties of real numbers in algebraic contexts
- Combine algebraic expressions and solve equations
- Draw and construct geometric objects
- Understand the concept of similar polygons, and solve related problems
- Represent and interpret data
- Compute statistics about data sets

### 7th Grade

The focus of the content expectations is Algebra in nature.

- Expressions
- Solving equations
- Quadratic relationships
- Direct variation
- Indirect variation
- Slope
- Exponents
- Radicals
- Transformational geometry
- Data
- Probability

Students will work individually, in pairs, or in groups to solve mathematical problems.

### 8th Grade - Algebra 1

The class is a one-year accelerated course for the self motivated learner. The Michigan Merit Curriculum for Algebra 1 will reinforce the basic language rules of Algebra including:

- Write and understand basic algebraic expressions
